Crews Wrapping Up Following Recent Storm Activity
Chillicothe (Wednesday, February 11, 5:45 p.m.) – With conditions having improved and most activity completed, crews from the Ohio Department of Transportation - District 9’s highway maintenance facilities are wrapping up their efforts and heading home.
Throughout most of the district, routes are clear and wet, with some localized areas of drifting snow and light slush still being reported on routes, particularly in Adams and Ross counties. Routes in Highland County, however, are still partially snow covered due to blowing and drifting snow.
While the majority of crews have returned to their respective garages, there will be some on the highways during the evening hours to plow back shoulders, clean median crossovers and patrol for ice. In addition, all available crews in Highland County will continue plowing and treating roadways until they are clear.
Motorists are advised to continue exercising additional caution, especially when traveling over pavement that is wet as this may be slick and ice could form quickly. Motorists are also reminded to be cautious when traveling over bridges and overpasses where freezing may occur and over hills and in curves where snow may drift.
